Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man

Daniel Radcliffe infiltrated Comic-Con disguised as Spider-Man

In his ongoing quest to prove he is Harry Potter no more, Daniel Radcliffe eschewed an invisibility cloak for a slightly more basic disguise at last weekend's Comic-Con convention.

"I went as Spider-Man, which has no relevance to anything I do," Radcliffe told the Los Angeles Times. "It's just a great superhero, and one I fancied myself playing. That was the superhero I was convinced for a brief period of time I would one day turn into."

Maybe it's a British thing, considering fellow English actor Maisie Williams (Game of Thrones' Arya Stark) also donned a Spidey disguise in order to wander through the Comic-Con crowds undetected. She was even kind enough to post an Instagram of the adventure:

Williams and Radcliffe didn't bump into each other in their matching costumes, though; Radcliffe's security team walked the floor with him, decked out in character costumes, too.
